    yeah or it could be same era F1 lotus (my guess) or lola.

    Good eye (also), didn’t catch that.

    on that whole garage tho, fuck I think I wanna be rich. 15 garage bays, 20 +- cars including at least 3 vettes, Ford gt, microbus, gullwing Benz sl, bimmer z8, few ferraris (off screen to left in this pic) and is that a fucking delorean in the back center right, next to the sl? Probably still has the coke in it.

    That body looks like a Lotus 25. The offset might just be parallax, but if it isn't, it's probably a replica setup for ovals.

    That’s kind of a shitty place to locate it though. Should be closer to the windows facing the Three Sisters, not the neighbors house (or maybe this is inside the guest house?)
    Osborne fire finder, a type of alidade.

    And I agree, it deserves to be in the center of the look-out.

    Edit - Wooley12 beat me to it.

    I’ve never been in that house, but I lived in Dupage County for twenty five years. My next door neighbor was in the “salvage business” and his house was suspiciously similar.
    We called it modern hood.

    An inordinate number of hard surfaced floors in that place. Do they do a lot *something* that requires hosing down?

    -Frogs everywhere. Porcelain statuettes, paintings, pictures, etc. His mom loved frogs.

    That house would have been a nightmare to live in.
    HOWEVER…it was an amazing place to be when you were high.

    Or grandma died, they emptied it, redid the kitchen, and listed it for sale. Didn’t bother changing the 1970s basement pool/bar, or similar era bedroom. Furniture is just staging shit, hence the patio furniture in the kitchen.
